I still don't know how to feel about this movie. Verhoeven takes one of the most, if not THE most, controversial topics of 2016 and manages to absolutely avoid taking any political or moral positions. I don't know if that is brave or cowardly.
It is neither a feminist movie nor a conservative movie. It's more of a nihilist satire.
Everyone's talking about the sexual politics of the film but I just want to play the robot dog spartacus video game.
Verhoeven is back. His satirical irony applied to the sensitive topic of rape might sounds troubling, but Verhoeven manages to make a perfect dark satire about morale. Isabelle Huppert is a perfect femme fatale.
